One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes. This is known as diabetic neuropathy.
The symptoms of neuropathy can vary greatly depending on which types of nerves are impacted (sensory, motor or autonomic) and where the impacted nerves are located in the body. With many cases, neuropathy starts with numbness or tingling in your hands or feet. The intensity may build and spread into your arms or legs. Other types of neuropathy symptoms may include:
Peripheral neuropathy is generally classified into one of the following types:
Mononeuropathy: This is a type of neuropathy that only affects a single nerve.
Polyneuropathy: This is a type of neuropathy that affects many nerves throughout the body.
Autonomic neuropathy: This is a form of polyneuropathy which affects the autonomic nerves that control involuntary functions of the body.
